I’ve found myself on the east side of town more often than I would like recently thanks to my kid’s after school activities. Luckily, the original location of Grouchy John’s is close by. I’m a fan of the Star Wars motif and love all the local art that adorns the walls.
Their blended drinks are great, but I don’t want to know how much sugar is in them. The Jedi (white chocolate, coconut) and Chewbacca (Trader Joe’s cookie butter and dark chocolate sauce) ones have been my favorite so far. For less sweet options the bulletproof coffee (fresh-brewed coffee blended with MCT oil and grass-fed organic ghee) or the nitro cold brew are great options.
The place has stuff for non-coffee drinkers, too. My kid loves their strawberry smoothie and the suicide smoothie (strawberry, mango, peach) is my go-to order when I want something non-caffeinated.
If you need something to eat they’ve got a case full of bagels, muffins and pastries. Most are decent, if not spectacular.
Wifi is available as are board games and books to fill your entertainment needs.
